Doing nothing is not a solution. Immigrants' List is a political action committee dedicated to electing members of Congress who support common-sense immigration reform. Dear Friends: During First Lady Michelle Obama's visit to a Maryland elementary school on Wednesday, a second-grade girl asked why people without papers are being "taken away" and then said that her mother "doesn't have any papers." This poignant moment highlights the need for comprehensive immigration reform and the importance of supporting pro-reform candidates this November. The results from Tuesday's primaries demonstrate that this is going to be a tough year for incumbents, which puts pro-reform candidates like Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) at risk. Click here to donate $10, $25, or $50 to keep pro-reform candidates like Jim Himes in Congress! Rep. Himes, who spent the first 10 years of his life in Peru and Colombia and speaks Spanish fluently, was elected in 2008. Before running for Congress, he worked extensively in Latin America and ran the New York City office of a nonprofit that is working to end urban poverty. Rep. Himes, who routinely calls U.S. immigration policy dysfunctional and shameful, supports a practical and humane approach to comprehensive immigration reform as well as a path to citizenship, which includes documenting the country's estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants. Click here to contribute to a candidate who supports meaningful immigration reform! This afternoon, the Connecticut GOP will nominate a candidate to run against Rep. Himes in the fall. State Sen. Dan Debicella, who has lined up enough delegates to get his party's nod, is the presumptive nominee. During Debicella's tenure in the state Senate, he voted against the Immigrants and Postsecondary Education Act -- Connecticut's version of the DREAM Act. The 2007 bill would have allowed undocumented immigrants who met certain conditions to qualify for in-state tuition at Connecticut universities. The bill passed both houses of the Legislature but was vetoed by the governor. Jim Himes supports common-sense immigration reform, but his opponent won't! Please show your support for immigration reform and contribute to Jim Himes today! Learn more about Rep. Jim Himes here. Thanks for your continued support, Amy Novick Executive Director Immigrants' List
